i havent seen anything yet. it gets scratched but thats just normal. might want to try something like the onroad tc guys use for the carbon fiber chassis and then cut it to fit.

i see you are in dallas, ever make it over to Mike's in Carrollton?

Look what I just found!!

I know integy is known for soft materials and sub-par quality...but, They may last along time seeing how it is not too high stress of an area.

Touche'.....I have my LHS checking to see if they can get them. If not I guess I will have to order them from Integy.

On a side note....I wonder if they come with the pillow ball retainer nuts and the little plastic pieces to keep the pillow ball from galling up the aluminum??

Sent an email to integy and as of yet....no answer.
